Subject: Alt Versions
I had originally planned to submit with commons license but had second thoughts as to giving it away as they took quite a bit of time and effort. Can see them on Youtube search for Jekyll and Hyde Reborn.
They are on the borderline marketable so have been slow to decide how to proceed and have just finished Nosferatu, which came out at least as good as Jekyll and Hyde , but the video is so jumpy and low res I will probably upload it here under commons license. if not that, i have a comedy version of Jekyll that came out pretty good.

Subject: Why not add your version silentguy?
I ahve yet to see this movie, but reading the coments i got interested in that version silentguy said he did... Its an idea that has been in my head for some time, to "rework" the public domain silent movies into creative commons licensed movies with sound effects and either subtitles (instead of the dialogues being shown in cutouts) or have someone voicing over... Wonder what it would be!
I will download it now and maybe give a review later.
Anway, would love to see the reowkred version that you did, SilentGuy ;D

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TITLE?

Subject: Pre-1923 = Public Domain
Anything published before 1923 should be in the Public Domain.
Reviewer: Eastside Kidd - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 16, 2010
Subject: Definitely PD
This movie is definitely in the public domain and a number of websites will attest to this. YouTube was confusing this version with another version under copyright.

Subject: excellent silent
I know a lot of people don't want to watch silents, but this really is an exceptional movie. Anyone interested in movies should see this.
